Talk:NetWare File System
|WikiProject Computing||(Rated Stub-class)|
As a relatively newcomer I don't want to 'heavily' modify the page without asking advice on how to edit it. I wanted to edit the 'Directory Entries' bit as it's currently incomplete/incorrect. Currently the table shows the following:
- Maximum files per volume: ?
- Maximum files per server: 16 million
- Maximum directory entries: 16 million
To start with, NWFS does not have a maximum on the number of files per server. All limits are volume based, not server based. The maximum number of directory entries is 16MiB (or 2MiB on NetWare 4.1 and earlier).
- Either you're right, or Novell is right. At this link,  then click on the link entitles "Advantages over the Netware File System" , there is a table that plainly says that NWFS "Supports up to 16 million files per server". Unless you've got better proof, I will believe Novell first.--MARQUIS111 16:12, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Each file or directory requires one directory entry slot for each name space installed. If you've added the MAC namespace, each file or directory will take up two directory entries.
What do you think is the best way to edit this wiki? JoetjeF 00:07, 27 August 2005 (UTC)
